Theatre Group at SBCC Presents ARSENIC AND OLD LACE, Now thru 7/26

The Theatre Group at SBCC will present the classic comedy, ARSENIC AND OLD LACE, by Joseph Kesselring and directed by Katie Laris, today, July 9-26 in the beautiful Garvin Theatre.

Abby and Martha are two charming old ladies with a deadly habit of sharing their arsenic-laced elderberry wine with all their lonely gentlemen callers. When their nephew Mortimer, a drama critic on the eve of his engagement, finds the body of one of their victims, he soon discovers that his whole family is insane. Between one brother's belief that he is Teddy Roosevelt, and another on the lam from an international crime spree and his two homicidal aunts, Mortimer is forced to put his marriage plans on hold indefinitely, until he can restore some degree of sanity into the household.
